MIDPOINT Feature Launch is a professional script development programme intended for young and emerging film professionals with projects of first and second feature films and professional short film.
MIDPOINT Feature Launch was created to provide support to writers, producers and directors to enable them to constructively participate in the development process. It also helps to integrate emerging film professionals into the marketplace by facilitating experience in international collaboration and networking opportunities.
Workshops include international teamwork on projects, with each team lead by a professional script doctor, as well as in-depth meetings with guest tutors, and inspiring master classes by renowned filmmakers and other film professionals.
